Fiorina on Fey

McCain surrogate Carly Fiorina sizes up Tina Fey’s Sarah Palin:

“Well, I think that [Tina Fey] looked a bit like her. I think, of
course, the portrait was very dismissive of the substance of Sarah
Palin, and so in that sense they were defining Hillary Clinton as very
substantive and Sarah Palin as totally superficial. I think that
continues the line of argument that is disrespectful in the extreme,
and, yes, I would say sexist in the sense that just because Sarah Palin
has different views than Hillary Clinton does not mean that she lacks
substance."
